Still working on that hot first release.



Back from a 15-year hiatus from the recording industry, Corey Roberts
has hit the ground running with his latest release, Here in the Middle
on nub records. The Acoustic, Pop, Rock album was written over the
last 20 years and recorded over the last 13 years in Austin, TX. HITM
highlights wide lyrical ranges over sweet melancholy piano passages
both accompanied by a soothing acoustic guitar.

Roberts, a vocal and piano major in college, plays almost all the
instruments on the album, which can be broken into three divisions
based on the instrumentation used. Everything You Wanted and It
Was Me show off the intimacy of just a lone acoustic guitar chased by
an inquisitive vocal melody. The second division adds more
instruments such as a haunting sustained piano coupled with multiple
lyric harmonies in She Says and Where You Are. The busiest of the
tracks, such as the title track, Here In The Middle or The Girl You
Used To Know, feature a guest percussionist with Roberts adding on a
bass and lead guitar.

In the 90’s, Corey headed up such bands as The Groove Merchants,
Alexander Inmate, Wookin’ pa Nub and started the label nubrecords in
1993, which housed over 25 bands at its peak. After relocating to
Austin, TX in 1998, Roberts opened ponysound, which is a state of the
art, audio post-production studio focusing on national TV and radio ads.
“The Success of the studios has allowed me to take my time recording
this album,” says Roberts. Corey’s three main influences on the album
are Simon and Garfunkel, Beck and Merle Haggard. He is currently
supporting the album with solo acoustic shows.
